Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The focus of this project is to research how the fixie bicycle is developed and diffused in a socio‐technical system, and how this development is influenced by social groups, identity questions and subcultures. These aspects have determined how this type of bicycle could evolve from a niche, propelled by social groups and subcultures, to become mainstream. This project has a humanistic approach to explain the diffusion of a technological artifact like the fixie‐bicycle.
